On the other hand, I really want Rossi to win it next year, time is running out for him icon_rolleyes.gif

Yeah that will be great but judging by how well MM does this year, that is a pretty tall order. Honestly if the 2 bikes are about even like now, I think MM will win again. VR needs to have the Yamaha slightly faster than the Honda and makes less mistakes, otherwise it will be MM's title.

He probably can, provided Yamaha can keep ahead in development. He's won many, another would make it 10 across all classes then he can retire on top.
Thing is, even if Yamaha is faster, Viñales might be quick too.

Yes, it will be interesting to see if Vinales can challenge Rossi next year. If he can do like JL did back then when JL joined Yamaha, that is sign of another new tough competitor for Rossi, we'll see.

rider's mistake took more pivotal role imo. sometimes the bike already at their utmost limit.

like recently in sepang, rossi was ahead for most of the time but he overshoot the corner and let dovizioso passed him.
*
Yes, I agree too. The mistakes that Rossi made in Austin, Assen, and Motegi are actually more than enough to put him clear on top of the standings!
As for the Sepang race, yes he made a mistake in turn 1 but the he subsequently had tire wear issue with the front tire that prevented him to challenge back. So even if he did not over shoot that time, he would still lose Dovi coz Dovi just had better pace that time.

Just unfortunate that the years he beat JL were when he did not win the title while the years he lost to JL were the years JL won the title! sweat.gif

Underwhelming performance by VR but he's never that strong in Valencia anyway and hey got nothing much to fight for already. At least Movistar Yamaha wins the team title, small consolation.

Typical boring race when JL headed up front unchallenged. MM might have won it if not for the poor start.

Now not easy to ride 2 different classes in the same day. The bikes are totally different and the rides are more exhausting. Even Rossi admits that.

Much faster & more powerful bikes, heavier too.

i can foresee Ducati to be quite dominant next season. The machines getting better, and now JL will be riding it. smile.gif

If JL can adapt to it then they can be competitive, stealing more wins next year coz like it or not JL is surely much better rider than AI & AD. The thing is for JL, all his MotoGP career has been spent on the M1 which is always well known to be well balanced bike which is very good at cornering with their edge grip matching JL's riding style with smooth but fast cornering speed, while the Duc is probably the opposite of that and relies more on their power and acceleration. Anyway we'll just have to wait and see.

it's either the rider suit the bike or the bike suit the rider. both factors have to be tolerated. i dun see Ducati gonna do big changes to the panigalle, so JL somehow need to compensate. hmm.gif

btw, speaking of Ducati, imo they has let go the wrong Andrea. biggrin.gif

AI seems so much comfortable with his bike.
*
Yeah, if JL cannot adapt then will be like VR last time, total failure in the Duc! VR supposedly has a more aggressive style which they thought can adapt better to the Duc like Stoner but alas he still failed. But obviously the Duc also has evolved a lot since then so maybe JL has a chance.

AI is a crasher, that's why! With AD, they have a more stable/reliable guy to support JL who they'd expect to be the faster and therefore the leader.

Still early days, people do many different things on these tests. But yeah, MV seems pretty fast. JL also seems pretty quick to adapt to the Duc. AI maybe fast but yet to show consistency to be fast without crashing often. Zarco & Folger also seem doing a solid job.

SHELL MALAYSIA MOTORCYCLE
GRAND PRIX 2016 BREAKS
CROWD RECORD

The Shell Malaysia Motorcycle Grand Prix 2016 broke another crowd record for the MotoGP in Malaysia, recording a total of 161,553 spectators this year over the weekend with 95,316 spectators on race day surpassing last year’s record by 7.3% despite rainy weather affecting the entire three-day weekend this year.

MotoGP is definitely to stay at SIC but F1 is surely gone already beyond 2018. But later when VR retires, we'll see how many still want to come watch at SIC. I think there can be a big drop in attendance around the world and not just SIC. I presume MM and maybe MV (if he's competitive enough) shall take the mantle afterwards. You can already see fans of MM now starting to grow larger.

But the MotoGP ones were just satellite bikes, not the main manufacturers' teams. Put MM/VR/JL then they will be a couple of seconds faster than JR.

Honestly I think not even a close contest, MM will destroy JR on the same bike, be it MotoGP or WSBK machine! You just have to look at how competitive still Hayden is in WSBK and you know the general capability of the riders there compared to MotoGP riders! smile.gif

He maybe the longest serving WSBK rider into MotoGP but was simply not fast enough to win any. Troy Bayliss at least able to win once!

I think this one gives a lighter shade of the interview. The one you posted sounds very serious without the laughs and chuckles.

Yeah, I kinda suspect that he made that comments with joking as well even though he's telling the truth as a sign of respect to MV's apparent speed. We'll see next year if the joking stops or not!

Even F1 still doesn't do stupid reverse grid! IMHO reverse grid is true betrayal of the essence of motor sport by penalizing the faster guys and rewarding the slower ones.
